Engineering Advising implements the academic policies of the College Curriculum Governing Board (CCGB). The professional academic advisors provide a variety of advising services and programs to assist students in achieving their undergraduate academic and personal goals. Engineering Advising and CCGB evaluate good academic standing for unaffiliated students at the end of each semester and support students through the affiliation process during sophomore year.

  • Ensure that students have the information, counsel, and resources to succeed;

  • Provide accurate and current information to current Engineering students, potential Engineering students, and other interested students regarding major, College, and University degree requirements, polices, procedures, rules, and regulations;

  • Work in partnership with Engineering faculty advisors, peer advisors, administration and staff, as well as faculty from other Cornell colleges and schools and various other University entities, in order to promote student success within the College;

  • Work with students in an environment emphasizing the developmental process of student growth and success;

  • Keep abreast of relevant academic advising, student development, and related research and literature to constantly improve our services to students;

  • Promote the shared responsibility of academic advising between the student and the advisor;
